Texas Mom goes viral for Hocus Pocus 2 clip. Spoiler alert: she is not a fan of the franchise. 

 

 

Texas Mom Jamie Gooch has gone viral after warning parents about the dangers of – wait for it – Hocus Pocus 2.

 

The movie sees the return of Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, reprising their roles as the Sanderson sisters, a jovial and entirely fictional trio of child-hunting witches.

 

The Sanderson Sisters’ return – this time to the small screen – has been a huge success for its streamer, Disney+, which recorded the biggest movie debut EVER in its history, 29 years after the original movie released.

Gooch first warned parents about the film on Facebook, before then speaking to CBS’ local Texas affiliate KWTX for an interview which has since gone viral.

 

“A worst case scenario is: you unleash hell on your kids and in your home,” Gooch says. “The whole movie is based on witches harvesting children for blood sacrifices.”

 

Take a look at the clip while it’s still up:

 

 

“Do not watch this film,” she continues. “Everybody thinks it’s fake and innocent, but they could be casting any type of spell that they want to, anything could be coming through that TV screen into your home.”

 

Gooch detailed to reporters that her family has not participated in Halloween in about four or five years because, “the thought of exposing my kids to darkness”.

“I think it goes further than just a movie, it goes further than Halloween, it’s a year-round thing, we constantly need to be cautious of what we’re consuming, what we’re bringing in and what we’re sending out,” Gooch said.

 

“I believe whatever comes in our TV screens: there are things attached to that, I’ve seen for myself the things that I’ve watched with my eyes or heard over a TV screen, they’ve become manifested in real life, and then I think ‘oh my gosh, what did I consume?’”

 

As the video went viral on various social spaces, Gooch became the subject of some internet parodies, playfully mocking the interview.

 

One such parody came from comedian Blaire Erskine, which currently has around 3 MILLION views and counting on Twitter.
